Paterson, Brian. Increasing seedstock production of domesticated giant tiger prawns. Lead Agency: CSIRO.
Project Start: 14 October 2008
Project End:29 July 2011
DEEDI has been approached to perform an important outdoor pond experiment using the heated nursery ponds at Bribie Island Aquaculture Research Centre to get tiger prawn broodstock out of expensive clear-water tank systems and into ponds.
This approach will enable a faster and more cost-effective adoption of existing selective breeding technology. Additional benefits will involve increased profitability and sustainability of genetic selection programs, improved understanding of prawn maturation benefiting other tiger prawn research and improved collaboration between DEEDI and CSIRO.
